Thank You Seattle!!

In the post-show clamor . .
With so many wrap-up tasks to be completed . . .
Getting a recap posted has been a most challenging undertaking.
Not for any negative reason . . . but rather, because . . .
Every adjective and acclamation pale in the face of the wondrous and humbling talent of each member of:
Listen To Your Mother – Seattle.

These writers bared their soul and shared their story in the presence more than a hundred audience members.
The brightness of a rare sunny day in Seattle could not compare to the radiance coming from every single story-teller on that Saturday afternoon. Every performance was simply brilliant.

For 90 minutes, these women held the rapt attention of every person present, including cast-mates, direction/production crew, and emcee. The collective ‘we’ shared uproarious laughter, and bittersweet tears as we followed along on a skillfully crafted journey through the multifaceted world of motherhood. From first-time parent worries, to the fears that come with facing cancer, imperfect mothers, as well as multiple generations of mothering – the totality of the narratives provided entertainment for the heart and nourishment to the soul.

Each observer that day was given the gift of a “me too” moment. The audience was equally generous in their appreciation, too.
By final curtain-call, the cast was treated to a well deserved standing ovation.

The love was, and is, completely mutual.
